The lights are on
Taking on the role of an evil being and constructing a deathtrap for heroes isn't a new gaming concept, but that doesn't make it less entertaining. Impire taps into that formula.
Controlling a demon lord in an imp's body, players building a dungeon full of traps and monsters to ward off the advancing heroes who hope to halt the demon lord's return. Impire is being made at Cyanide Studios, and published by Paradox Interactive for PC. The trailer below looks promising; I hope the game is more entertaining than the developer's previous project.
For more on Impire, check out Paradox's site, which lists the game as a Q1 2013 release.
